In support of the BLACK LIVES MATTER movement, our team has decided to take a break from social media starting Tuesday, June 2nd
In order to make an important voice heard through the short film ZOO, selected during our 24th supposed to have taken place March 11th to 15th 2020.
Therefore, in addition to making the film available again on La Fabrique culturelle page of Télé-Québec for the entire weekend, an interview with the filmmaker Will Niava will be presented live on our Facebook page, June 6th at 3 p.m.
Moderated by host Freddy Lloyd, the discussion will be an opportunity for the filmmaker to express his motivations behind the film, and for the public to comment in real time.
The filmmaker and host both wished to donate their fees to support one of the support organization following the activity.
